Abstract

Twenty-seven patients with static or worsening chronic inflammatory-demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy were randomly assigned to alternate day decremental prednisone therapy alone or with azathioprine (2 mg/kg) for 9 months. No statistically significant alterations were demonstrated between these treatment schedules.
